Using dbfdump from shapefile version 1.2.10 I got this header:
Field 0: Type=Integer, Title=`êÛÿAöÈìå', Width=10, Decimals=0
Field 1: Type=String, Title=`è¯É}é╠æ¬ù╩', Width=30, Decimals=0
Field 2: Type=String, Title=`ÄÝò╩ïµò¬', Width=30, Decimals=0
Field 3: Type=String, Title=`╬▀Ï║̦û╝Å╠', Width=30, Decimals=0
Field 4: Type=Integer, Title=`ìsÉ¡âRü[âh', Width=10, Decimals=0
Field 5: Type=String, Title=`ÄsƼæ║û╝', Width=30, Decimals=0

It is the same that you are getting?
